Stayed here for two nights with my daughter for a mini break. We were greeted by friendly and efficient reception staff who advised us that there was a twin deluxe room available even though it was midday and check in is at 3pm. The room was very nicely decorated and furnished and the beds were very comfortable. I was slightly...

Dear guest, Many thanks for your kind report. Every single room at The Dominican includes bathrobes, slippers and a safe. Not in the main wardrobe, though in a separate closet near the entrance to the bathroom. Whenever you stay with us again, make sure to call reception for more information. Warm regards, Ellen de Boer. General Manager - The Dominican

Lets get the good points first - staff were friendly, professional and obliging. Location is good, reasonable price, great bar and facilities. We initially got placed in a room directly below the gym on the 4th floor and requested a move due to the noise from above - which was unbearable. I would request a room facing the courtyard and...

A lovely hotel in an excellent location. It is in easy walking distance of the Grand Place and most other sites, yet it feels miles away from any noise and bustle. The rooms are well-appointed and always cleaned well. All of the staff we encountered, from reception to cleaning staff were polite, friendly and helpful. The cocktails in the bar...

The Dominican is a beautiful, trendy, boutique-style hotel located about 10 minutes (walking) from Grand Place. The staff is fine - not friendly, but not unfriendly either - there is definitely a pretentious vibe given off. Our room was on the 3rd floor, and it was fine - clean and a decent size. Upon our arrival there were 2 rolls...

My parents were over for short holiday and I was looking for a nice hotel to have tean and cakes as a treat one afternoon. We fell onto this place and just loved it. The atmosphere was lovely. Barman was very friendly and baby-friendly. Tea selection was great and cakes just yummy.

The Dominican is an average hotel. The rooms were OK but not great and I didn't get the boutique hotel 'feel' that I was expecting. Cleaning could have been better.

Spent four days in Brussels visiting family. Reception in hotel was very welcoming. Room was spacious, overlooking small courtyard. Bathroom was well appointed. Housekeeping was a bit late in the day but we adapted. Breakfast was varied and the service from Reda was friendly. Will be back again. Thank you Giles!
